Killers should stop showing concern for Indian Muslims: AIUDF chief Badruddin Ajmal responds to ISIS

Guwahati: A recent video released by ISIS which targeted India attacked mainstream Muslim politicians for ‘compromising with a tyrannical system responsible for massacring Muslims’. Images of AIMIM leader Assaduddin Owaisi and AIUDF politician Badruddin Ajmal were shown with dead bodies, while in another picture Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar was shown embracing a Hindu priest and a Muslim cleric.

The video also attacked Muslim clerics for supporting infidels against ISIS. According to Indian Express, one jihadist said in the video: “Do not listen to those who tell you that Islam is a religion of peace. Islam was never a religion of peace for even one day. Islam is a religion of war. The Prophet commanded us to remain at war until the day the rule of Allah is established.”

Responding to the video, AIUDF politician Badruddin Ajmal wrote on Twitter: “An unislamic organization like ISIS shouldn’t lecture us on our role as leader of the community. It’s better you bunch of killers stop showing concern about Indian Muslims, they don’t need it. Indian Muslims never supported terrorism in the past, and never will in the future.”
